August 21, 2014

Treatment with bisphosphonates for osteoporosis provided no protective effect against the risk for invasive postmenopausal breast cancer, according to an analysis of results from two randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trials.

These results contradict findings from observational studies that suggest bisphosphonates may suppress the proliferation of estrogen-sensitive breast cancer cells.
